What makes you happy? What do you do and why do you do it? This past year has really opened my eyes to what all of that really means. I was in a dark place for a little while. I didn't want to train or do anything for that matter; I'd mentally check out during races. You can't truly be successful at what you do if you aren't happy doing it. The day I sat on my futon and cried, was the day I knew I had to do something about it.
Ever since my last race in July, I haven't laced up my running shoes or hopped in the pool for anything more than a recovery workout. I kept riding my bike and I was happy again. I hopped on the track (cycling) and I haven't looked back. I've dabbled in track racing before, but this time around I am 110% commited and I'm super excited for the 2017 season. Who knows what the next couple years will bring, but I can say that I'm happy and that's all that matters right now. #Ttown
